Hi,

I am developing an Arabised Application on Pocket PC. I have tried, in
Sybase Central, to insert a row containing Arabic charateres but when i
have finished it replaced then with ' ??? '.

Is there a batch or version of the product so i can use arabic characteres
?!!

Thanks,
Shirad

Use UTF8 collation. Your Arabised PocketPC app needs to use Unicode too. If
your app contains a local ASA engine sitting on the PocketPC that database
will also need to use UTF8.

There is no need to use UTF8.
Arabic is a single byte collation, so you would be better off creating a
custom collation to deal with it (see the ASA documentation for details on
how to do this).
ASA does not handle right-to-left sorting, so it is important to note that
sorting will not be correct

You should also have a look at (and test) the SORTKEY function in the ASA
documentation, which will allow you to sort data in the database using a
different charset
